Description

No, there are no elves on Ixalan, but they will be at FNM with a budget deck like this! Going with a +1/+1 counters theme to make our elves bigger and then added 1 Merfolk to make our elves unblockable. Super fun, and I know Ixalan gave us all sorts of tribal, but I think while elves are still in standard I would like to give them a try.

10/9/17: Won in 2 against R/G Dinosaurs. Getting through unblockable damage thanks to the Merfolk friend!

Maybe a couple metallic mimics? (if you can afford it)

Was trying to make this budget, but I know the mimic should hold its value after it rotates cause Commander :) maybe I will pick up a few in trades if I can

Thanks for the suggestion!

Hey, any interesting interaction I've used with Cultivator of Blades is reanimating it with God-Pharaoh's Gift. The drawback of Blades is it doesn't do anything the turn it's played because it needs to attack to pump an army of other attackers. Gift takes away this drawback because when Blades is reanimated it gets haste as well as being a 6/6 with a counter. Giving all other attacking creatures that turn +6/+6 can be game winning especially with a Herald also in play. A reanimated Blades is a 4/4, but it also gets it's fabricate 2 ability since a creature reanimated with Gift also gets any ETB abilities it has.

Consider including a small Gift package of 4x Chart A Course and 2x Gift? You could replace Opt with Chart, cut Glimmer of Genius and 1x Rashmi for 2x Gift. Gift has a mana cost of seven, but this is fine because both Servant, Rishkar and other creatures with counters on them can make mana.

I like that idea a lot! I will test it out and let you know how it goes!

Thank you for the feedback.
